This is a very solid summer 93 show with the obvious highlights being the blistering Deal and the stunning China>Rider that opens the second set. First set is well played with the lowlight coming during Broken Arrow, Broken Arrow and I Will Take You Home are the two sappiest songs the Dead ever played, rough stuff to be sure. There is some onstage banter during the first set but I forget what is said. The Deal that closes the first set takes this show to another level with furious jamming. Unfortunately a crackle comes through the sbd during Deal and China>Rider. I used to think this was a flaw in the sbd recording but it comes through on the aud too so I think it was coming from the sound system. Despite some crackle early in the song this China Cat charges out of the gate with some wild Phil riffs to start it off. Phil and Jerry procede to shred this classic combo, this is how China>Rider is meant to be played. Jerry does an amazing finger-picked solo after the verses that will have you shaking your head in amazment and disbelief. Truckin>Smokestack is above average as well. The Smokestack is sinister, some down and dirty Chicago Blues. The rest of the set is well played but nothing spectacular. The Throwing Stones>Saturday Night is particularly hot, nice to hear T. Stones go into something other than NFA. Rain encore is very sweet, my personal favorite of the Beatles covers, and sent us home with a smile. I had quite the adventure trying to find the train station after the show in a much altered state , the ride itself was pretty wild too.

4 stars for SBD-not the crispest summer 93 board out there(see6-15-93).
5 stars for Deal and China>Rider.
3+ for the rest of the show due to some uneven playing.

Subject: Emotional
I was at this show 30th row on the phield-in the Phil Zone, and the outrageous China>Rider were no doubt hi-lites, but the emotional Broken Arrow, and SOTM were my favorite parts of what was a memorable show. Sting opener was surreal, having him play, as Heads were getting themselves set up for the show.

In personal experience this show exemplifies the furthering disease and loss of mission statement for the audience of the Grateful Dead. Other than coming upon what by this point now seemed to me the insidious sound of those tanks as u would approach what ever venue, and then going in to this specific show with 7th row center seats only to be flushed out by 2 enormous guys who were not exactly unfriendly, but expected to share a space of one seat with me. I know I could have asked them to move along, maybe I did, but I think I was just so bummed that what I perceived as this Metallica and shopping mall type of mindset had taken over what at times in the years was something like a church, I think the band felt this too, that my reaction was more of a fuckit variety. This made me a vagabond for the rest of the show with nowhere within 130 yards of the stage if anywhere that was a suitable alternate spot, as always in later years, it was sold out. Although I did not get much of a chance to really listen, I do not recall it to have been a spectacular show, sort of glad of that. In fact I recall that one of the nights, I think this one, I actually thought Sting was better, and I am not much of a fan, but maybe that was because I got to see him from my seat.

I really wanted to hear this show, because I think I was there. I went to see the dead at SF in 1993, this must have been the show, but there is crackling during the recording.

Subject: What a strange trip indeed
2 weeks before these shows my girlfreind and I orderd tix and made plans to go to these shows,one week before the shows my so called best freind of 13ears stole her away with shit talking and lie's. So I ended up having getting a ride to these shows with them. So as soon as I got there I found my dead fam[had done a couple tours at this point]and stayed away. When the first night's show ended I decided to check in on them and she was unhappy cuz he became a "hippycrack"head. The jackass found a ticket and traded it for more n2o. the entire weekend he sat in the front seat saying how much he loved his balloon[she dumped him and put the moves on me the first night. I almost felt bad but I still ended up breaking up with her in boulder,co a month or two later]. Anway the second night was so humid you could hear it in the music[there were some scary pops and cracks coming from the equitment but somehow it it added to the cool wet sound.

Sting opened followed by a kickass lightning storm which scattered all inside Soldier Field. Never forget having to "escape" to our seats. One of the most memorable shows. Too bad for the hiss
